Proton therapy for skull base and spine tumor

Proton therapy for skull and spine base tumors

Tumors in the base of the skull are frequently difficult to treat due to their close proximity to structures such as the brainstem, brain, cranial nerves and optic nerves. Surgical removal can be difficult and the dose of radiation that can be delivered with standard X-ray radiation treatments can be restricted.
